Tuesday, July 31, 2012 – Proper 13/Ordinary 18, Year B
2 Samuel 12:13 – David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the LORD.” Nathan said to David, “Now the LORD has put away your sin; you shall not die.
David suffers consequences from his choices, but he has been forgiven by God. I can only imagine the depth of sorrow David must have felt at disappointing God, but the story of David can give all of us courage to face those darker moments in our lives and trust in our forgiving God.
Prayer: Psalm 51:11-12 – Do not cast me away from your presence, and do not take your holy spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and sustain me in a willing spirit. AMEN.
